Ancient Ruins/Civilization Thread

So I'm sure some of you ancient mystery geeks like me have known about these but I thought it would be cool to consolidate this into one resource/discussion thread. Feel free to post ancient cities, mysteries, but let's not teeter off into the ancient aliens bullsh*t shall we? :)

And the ruins don't need to be controversial, maybe just some really cool pictures.




LOCATION 1 - [b][size=6]Havana, Cuba Waters[/size] (.5 miles in depth)[/b]

So the site is too deep to dive but in the early-2000s after its discovery, machines were used to map, take photos, and reveal what lies at the ocean floor. The discovery was validated by National Geographic however not many videos or media have sensationalized the ruins.

Sonar Based reconstructions, again this is 1/2 mile below sea level:

-My take-

This site really fascinates me because of its depth and scale. I do believe it gives further credence to the notion that the countless flood myths around the world have some type of historical basis. When I get a chance I'll be doing one on Dwarka and Yonaguni.

Agree haha

I just think even seeing the globe pre-flood would be wild

I don't know how truly accurate this is, but this is what the land would look like around N. America:

Is that during the iceage ?

Water just doesn't "appear"

Unless we go all biblical in the explanation, and I am fine with that too.

Yea during this time there would have been over a mile of ice laying on top of a good portion of North America

[size=6][b]Yonaguni Monument[/b][/size], Japan...the south tip of the Ryukyu Islands (Actually quite close to Taiwan)

This one is more heavily disputed in the natural v. man-made category but it clearly warrants good conversation. The sea level dating for this being dry land extends anywhere from 3,000 bb to 10,000 bc. The scale of this thing is crazy and similar to the Cuban monument would match an ancient coastline region. No matter what side of the argument you fall on, this thing is quite the amazing underwater world.
